“Giving old batteries - Getting new presents”: Joining hands to protect the environment with a program exclusively for Sunners

From now on, you’d better hurry to collect the used batteries to receive a unique gift from the Green & Safe Committee!

Do you know that if you throw old batteries into the trash, which then will be collected and buried, heavy metals such as lead, zinc, nickel, mercury in batteries will seep into the soil, groundwater and cause pollution? Or in another case when the batteries are burned, the hazardous components inside will turn into toxic smoke and the battery's poison left in the ash will cause air pollution.

According to research, the amount of mercury in a used-up battery when thrown away can contaminate 500 liters of water or 1m3 of soil in 50 years. Mercury from polluted water sources, when entering the body through eating, breathing, can harm the brain, kidneys, heart. At the same time, lead when entering the body will cause confusion or halt the biochemical reaction,  rickets, physical retardation in children, dementia, infertility in adults, etc. Just a small, seemingly harmless battery can cause great harm to human health and the environment.

However, the majority of people are not aware of classifying hazardous waste and batteries at home. After a period of use, when the battery is no longer usable, people have a habit of disposing of them indiscriminately or in the trash like other types of waste. If one battery can pollute 500 liters of water or 1 meter square of the soil, it is not known for 50 years, considering the number of used batteries in a family, it is not hard to imagine the extent to which millions of households like that will pollute the environment.

Realizing the necessity of propaganda as well as building up the habit of disposing of batteries in the right places, the GREEN & SAFE COMMITTEE Committee (GSC - Formerly known as 5S Committee) is about to organize the program “Giving old batteries - Getting new presents” on a large scale in all 3 offices across the country. GSC encourages all Sun* employees to initially form a habit of not throwing batteries into the environment, at the same time join hands to repel harmful actions to the environment and human health.

The battery exchange program will take place at 16:30 on February 26, 2021 at all Sun Asterisk's offices. For every 20 used batteries, Sunner can receive 1 out of 3 extremely attractive eco-friendly gifts as follows:

  • 01 Beautiful little green tree to put on the table
  • 01 Set of bamboo spoons, forks, and chopsticks, engraved with the exclusive GSC Committee logo
  • 01 Bamboo drinking cup engraved with the exclusive GSC Committee logo
Gift of the program "Giving old batteries - Getting new presents" organized by GSC

From now on, let’s quickly collect or "ask for" the used batteries o receive a unique gift. And remember that the number of gifts is limited, and each person can only receive a maximum of 2 gifts!
